Start your search is powered by EBSCO Discovery Services and combines a variety of library collections, catalogs and databases into a single search experience.
Start your Search does not include everything in the Library's collections. To ensure you're finding the best possible articles on your research topic, you should search discipline-specific databases directly.
Content that is not included in Start your Search:
It's difficult to track precisely which databases are or are not available in Start your Search for several reasons:
1. keywords; variant word endings
facebook politic* communit*
* truncation symbol (child* = child, childs children, childhood, childish...)
on the left, limit to scholarly/peer reviewed articles; or limit to books, limit by language...
2. phrase search; official subject headings; narrowing
quotation marks keep two or more words together as a phrase
3. alternative terms
"black twitter" or "blacktwitter"
"african american*" or black*
"asian american*" or "japanese american*"
4. think creatively about your search terms; look through results for other ideas:
k-pop fan* online
k-pop fan* online american*
k-pop fan* video*
